Amsterdam based Marta Veludo (originally from Lisbon, Portugal), is an art director, graphic designer and illustrator well-known for being inspired by pop culture and folk art. In her artworks, both for cultural and commercial fields, there’s a great influence coming from colors, movements and compositions, all in the wake of engaging experiences.
Marta is very able to combine different disciplines and mediums, stretching from brand communication to visual identity and printed materials, all in a digital realm or on a three- dimensional scale. Her motto is ‘fun and play’, as her first memories of creativity date back to when she was around 5 years old, in the era in which her fingers got dirty from painting and drawing with any possible color. She spent hours building up exhibitions in her grandmother’s kitchen.
Then, after high school, she studied sculpture at The Fine Arts department of the Fine Arts Uni in Lisbon, to soon realize she wanted something more ‘visual’. That’s how she started engaging with posters to then end up with a BA in Graphic Design.
She soon moved to Barcelona for her MA at Elisava, where she found her first working experience.
Veludo finally ended up in Amsterdam to work for Matte Studio, where she designed for both cultural and retail fields. Soon she decided to bring this creative job and passion to a next level and launch a studio of her own.
